Nervous Chairs: amusing furniture by Wilkinson & Rivera

Wilkinson & Rivera is a collaboration by London-based husband-and-wife duo Grant Wilkinson and Teresa Rivera, specializing in creating unique furniture. Their Nervous Chairs series is an amusing way to channel our collective anxiety.

Our tastes can be pretty contemporary but we’re fascinated by traditional techniques. We try to incorporate them in each piece: for the Windsor, it’s steam-bending the backrest. For La Silla, we weave the caned seats by hand. For our latest piece, the Welsh Stick Chairs, we included hand-carved barley twists.
